NYC’s FAUST Paints Two Get-Out-The-Vote Murals in Philly Ahead of 2020 Election

October 30, 2020

As we go through the final days of the 2020 Election this week, two new get-out-the-vote murals painted by legendary New York-based artist FAUST have popped up along South Street!

Located at 3rd and South Streets and American and South Streets, respectively, FAUST’s murals were created on temporary construction walls, so they won’t be permanent. The artist was brought to Philly by Mural Arts Philadelphia.

FAUST has been named as one of Juxtapoz Magazine’s Top 20 Graffiti Artists to Know Right Now. And if you don’t know the artist, here’s a bit more about him from his website: “The formal qualities of FAUST’s murals explore scale and placement to challenge how viewers perceive graffiti. The poise and artistry of FAUST’s handstyle elevate a gesture deriving from vandalism to a masterful calligraphic work of art, transforming any surface they adorn.”

LOVE these new murals!
